In attempt to increase my pitiful year list I have recently made an attempt to fill the most glaring holes. A visit to the fjord added Mute Swan, Tufted Duck, Goldeneye, Great Black-Backed and Common Gull, Little Grebe, Red Breasted Merganser, Eider and Comorant and a trip to Østensjøvannet gave me Canada, Barnacle and Greylag Goose and Coot.
Little Grebe is the only species that I may have trouble finding later in the year but it felt to get some birds under my belt. The year list has now reached 45 species!!! This is very very poor and does not include a single wader species but January birding in these parts is always slow going.
